Sustainability and Wal-Mart

Posted By on Thu, Jul 16, 2009 at 6:21 AM

The New York Times gives quite a bit more attention than local press did today to the Wal-Mart plan to come up with labeling that quantifies the environmental and social sustainability of every item the discount store sells. (The official rollout is today, but news outlets began reporting the story after it was broken on-line.)

The photo? First sustainability label I want to see -- the Hostess Sno-ball.
